ACS completely locked during SQL execution

Latest version of ACS hangs when executing long running SQL statement via SQL Scripts.

Use Case:

If I run a SQL script that runs for minutes (say 5) it locks all of my active ACS sessions, including 5250. Not very good.

Also scrolling thru the SQL result set in SQL Scripts is terribly slow if the the result set contains thousands of rows.
